    Mine don't have them on, and unlike you I ride 2 up 95% of the time and haven't had a problem since the recall, loctite works also

    The issue is not the bolt grade, its the fact they come loose. Once they loosen all the load is applied to the fastener and its cantilevered on top of it. No bolt can sustain that kind of load.

    I'm new here, and to Big Dogs, bought an 08 Pitbull last week. Would my bike be in this recall, possibly?

    Nope...different strut design. You should be good to go. Just make sure the bolts are torqued to spec.

    Drilled the bolts out and they were grade 8. Now I'm dealing with a cracked frame.
